Diamond, Penguin Books Announce Doctor Who Distribution Deal

From Comic Book Resources

Penguin Books UK has signed a distribution deal with Diamond Comic Distributors (DCD) to sell and promote its young adult and children’s line of Doctor Who books and novels to comic book specialty stores, bookstores, mass-market merchandisers, libraries and other outlets in the United States and Mexico.

"We’re excited to be working with Diamond," said Juliet Matthews, Penguin UK’s Media and Entertainment Publisher. "The growing audience of Doctor Who fans in the U.S. makes it an ideal partnership to extend our reach."

A division of Penguin Group, Penguin Books UK has published over one hundred books and novels in its Doctor Who young adult and children’s line. In 2012, Penguin UK will release several new novels and books, including Doctor Who: Alien Adventures, book three of its mass market paperback novel series; a Doctor Who Activity Book, featuring puzzles, games and stickers; and Doctor Who: Where's the Doctor?, a seek-and-find book with lots of hidden surprises.

"Doctor Who has been one of the growing brand licenses for Diamond and we’re happy to be selling the Penguin Books UK line in North America," said Bill Schanes, VP-Purchasing for Diamond Comic Distributors. "These books haven’t directly available from any U.S. source except for those that might have imported a small quantity."
